Beat Seasonal Colds and Boost Your Vitamin C by Eating Kiwis

November 28, 2001

Between Nutcracker and holiday madness, it’s all too easy to wear your body down and become vulnerable to colds. The moment we start sneezing, most of us instinctively reach for a glass of orange juice. A better bet? Grab a kiwi! One cup of the fruit has 273 percent of your daily vitamin C. And with 5 grams of fiber and only 100 calories, it’s waistline-friendly, too. Check out this fun recipe for kiwi popsicles that you can make with or without the dark chocolate—a delicious and nutritious way to soothe a sore throat.
